Universal Design for Learning Discussion √ §
Held in collaboration with the library!
Monday, March 9, 2020 · 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Universal Design is “the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.” While the intended focus of this semester’s series is instruction, universal design can be applied to a wide range of library services; this topic will appeal to librarians and staff that do not have instruction duties and will build on existing projects such as assistive technology, reference services, learning objects, active learning, and the on-going discussions regarding building space design and renovation. This session is facilitated by Katy Sullivan, Head of Reference in the Library and held in collaboration with the library as part of their discussion series on scholarly literature, lectures, or media presentations that explore accessibility through universal design in the library profession, and in academic libraries specifically.
